I'd like to take this opportunity to formally thank you for having the vision to provide our schools with such amazing tracks. The pupils, staff, governors and community are absolutely delighted with the result. 

The professionalism of the companies has meant that we've had our fields turned round with the smallest possible disruption to daily life at the school.  

I can't thank the companies - WSP (Ben Corfield), Kier (Steve Ash and Andy Lawrence), Tarmac, (Mathew Pugh) and L and R Roadlines (Paul Evans) enough for their vision and engagement with the schools. 

The track for us is much more than something to run around. It provides us with a resource which can be accessed all year and hopefully a place where the community can get some exercise when the weather is bad. 

Thank you for giving our children something very special which will benefit both schools way into the future!
